Lionel Messi valued as the world’s most expensive player at £163m




Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is valued as the
world's most expensive player at £163m, pipping
club team-mate Neymar to top spot.
Cristiano Ronaldo is third, in the list provided by
CIES Football Observatory, while Antoine
Griezmann and Tottenham striker Harry Kane
make up the top five.

The values of
the players are
based on several
different
variables
including age,
length of current
contract and
potential suitors.
All 100 players
in the list are
employed by
clubs in
Europe's top five
leagues -
Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga and
Ligue 1.
Kane's inclusion in the top five comes after a
hugely successful season at White Hart Lane.

The 22-year-old, who has attracted interest from
Manchester United, is valued at £87m in CIES
Football Observatory's latest findings.
Kane played a major role in helping Tottenham
compete for the title by scoring 25 goals to win
the Premier League Golden Boot.
Anthony Martial's valuation is rising every month
- the 20-year-old has shown he is capable of
terrorising his opponents during his first season
at Old Trafford.
United shelled out an initial fee of £36m but he is
now, accoring to the study, worth a staggering
£86m.
Juventus and France midfielder Paul Pogba, who
is being chased by Europe's top clubs, is valued
at £70m.
His valuation would be higher if he had a lengthy
deal with Juventus but his current contract is due
to expire in 2019.
Dele Alli's rise from a League One prospect to a
Premier League star has been remarkable.

Tottenham bought the Englishman for just £5m
but he is now said to be worth more than world
superstars such as Robert Lewandowski, Mesut
Ozil and Karim Benzema.
English duo Kane and Alli are joined in the top
100 by compatriots Raheem Sterling, Eric Dier,
Ross Barkley, John Stones, Jamie Vardy, Chris
Smalling, Joe Hart and Wilfried Zaha.
Premier League champions Leicester have three
representatives in Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and
N'Golo Kante.

The likes of Wayne Rooney and Zlatan
Ibrahimovic do not feature on the list because of
their age at 30 and 34 respectively.
